    I have to ask… what’s the point of perfect grammar if you can’t communicate in the language?

  3. What are you trying to say, Hamid? I couldn’t quite understand you…

  4. Haha :) I think he was referring to my vocab score…

    Anyway, can anyone tell me what obsequious means without a dictionary?

    I’d also like to point out that the test is American, so that will impact on the results… They have different rules for some things (mainly because American is not English!).

  5. I’m afraid I do know what obsequious means, without a dictionary. It’s the kind of word that’s very useful when describing some characters in plays and things. It’s also generally a very cool word :)

    (btw – it means servile and flattering, esp. when someone does this purely in order to gain favour)

  6. Now, why doesn’t it surprise me that you knew the meaning of it…? :)

  7. What are you trying to imply?? I wouldn’t define myself as obsequious in the least!!!

  8. Sorry, my fault, I should have made myself clearer! It was more a comment that you know more rare and/or unusual words than anyone else I know.

    Sorry! xxx
